Do you believe in the importance of art education?

Do you think ALL children should be given the opportunity to express themselves creatively?

Would you like to support the work of Art Bytes to nurture talent in children?

Art Bytes is run by a small, not for profit social enterprise, dot-art Services. The generous support of our partners, funders and champions alongside school entry fees enables us to sustain the programme.



Due to continued cuts to the arts curriculum in schools, more and more children and young people are not being offered the chance of a rounded, creative education. This is despite the fact that the Creative Industries are currently growing at TWICE the rate of the rest of the economy and a huge proportion of future jobs will have creativity at their core. Many schools would love to take part in Art Bytes, but budget cuts have made it a challenge.

We rely on the generosity of our partners to run the Art Bytes programme every year. Please consider talking to us about how your business can help us to support the next generation develop their creativity.

In return we can offer a fantastic package of website, press and social media promotion, staff volunteering opportunities, free art classes to boost wellbeing, involvement in our annual prizegiving events, prints of our winning artworks and much more.


Sponsorship packages start from £295.

We are always happy to discuss support in kind and bespoke arrangements.

“It is always great to champion art in our schools as art nurtures creative thinking and problem solving abilities. When we nominated schools in Yew Tree ward to take part in the dot-art Schools competition last year, we weren’t sure what to expect but the results were outstanding. Then the world changed, and we couldn’t visit exhibitions to view the work of all the winners as planned. Instead voting and viewing was all managed virtually as was the Awards Ceremony and gallery. Hats off to dot-art for managing this complex process so well and affording families and pupils an opportunity to enjoy each other’s art despite lockdown! To any councillor who hasn’t yet championed the dot-art competition, I would strongly recommend you do so to open up schools and pupils in your ward to a great opportunity to demonstrate their talent and be artists!”
